olivia at the wishing treeWe were recently invited to place an editorial in the Diss Express, under the heading of Women in Business. So Helen and I put our heads together and came up with the following….limited to 150 words, it wasnt’t the easiest of tasks but we thought we made a good job of giving the readership a good impression of what The Wishing Tree has to offer….

Who’d have thought you’d have been able to buy a giraffe or an elephant in Long Stratton? Since September 2007 when Olivia Docherty opened The Wishing Tree this Aladdin’s cave has gone from strength to strength. Olivia and her team do their very best to make their customers wishes come true, sourcing unusual and ethical gifts both locally and from around the world. They also offer an unrivalled collection of JellyCat soft toys, Willow Tree Collectables, and the finest amber and gemstone jewellery for miles around. Recent customer interest has prompted a collection of mystical and magical items. A constantly changing window display of all the newest gorgeous things never fails to turn heads on the A140 and with an expansion in the pipeline before the year is out, the girls invite you to be part of The Wishing Tree’s future.

Earlier in the week the photographer had been and taken a few pictures of myself and Helen and the shop etc, which was great, and I managed to steel this one for my new facebook profile picture. I look forward to hearing som feedback from the editorial, and seeing a few new faces in the shop too. There are lots of people who drive past on the main road (A140) wondering what is to offer inside, visitors come from far off places, passing through on thier travels.

Look forward toseeing you soon

Love and Light

Olivia
